Teacher: Mandy Rowden
Level: Intermediate +
Ages: 18 +
Class is limited to 8 people Class Description: Discover the world of alternate tunings! Get inspired by approaching your instrument in a brand new way! New tunings inspire new musical thoughts. Alternate tunings let you play voicings and slide between chord forms that would normally be impossible. They give access to nonstandard open strings. Playing familiar fingerings on an unfamiliar fretboard is exciting — you never know exactly what to expect. And working out familiar riffs on an unfamiliar fretboard often suggests new sound patterns and variations.
Mandy Rowden is an acclaimed singer-songwriter and founder of "Girl Guitar," which is a program designed to encourage women to participate in learning an instrument, writing, playing, and performing. Rowden is a student for life and plays an always-expanding list of instruments that now includes: piano, fiddle, mandolin, bass, harmonica, drums, ukulele, and banjo.
"Rowden is more than your average country singer and a country mile beyond your average Americana performer." - Bluesbunny "Right up there in Lucinda Williams territory" — No Depression "An Americana Sheryl Crow? Mandy Rowden has the talent, chops, and charisma to go there." — Austin Chronicle "Cool middle-of-the-road pop with a friendly warm vibe...Rowden has an image and sound that could easily appeal to millions of music fans." — BabySue.com "On her debut album, These Bad Habits, Rowden tells it like it is over a wiry brand of alt-country, singing in a low-key, sleepily sensual voice that calls to mind Kim Richey or Lucinda Williams." — Charleston City Paper
